Firm History

BD Oakes Jardine Kaneski UnRuh LLP

BD Oakes Jardine Kaneski UnRuh LLP provides a wide range of legal services to our individual, corporate and institutional clients through our team of experienced lawyers who are supported by a highly competent and dedicated staff. Our staff provides excellent service and advice to our clients while maintaining a friendly and personal approach often unavailable in larger firms.

The firm’s history dates back to March of 1974 when the firm Martens & Dennehy merged with Ratuski & Kripiakevich. Over time the firm grew and evolved, moving to 387 Broadway and becoming Booth Dennehy Ernst & Kelsch. In January of 2019 the firm continued under its present name of BD Oakes Jardine Kaneski UnRuh LLP.

Our offices are immediately adjacent to the Law Courts, Traffic Court, Companies Branch, and other government regulatory offices, enhancing our ability to process and deal with matters quickly and efficiently.
